Clay Steps To Adam – ‘Idol’ Says ‘Step Off’: Did Clay Aiken approach “American Idol” standout Adam Lambert about a possible tour and duets album? According to the Chicago Sun-Times, Clay reportedly reached out to Adam last week about collaborating on a future project. The “Measure Of A Man” singer reportedly showed up unannounced on the “Idol” set and was given the cold shoulder by the staff of the FOX reality competition. Reportedly an “Idol” staff member told the Sun-Times that the show is not happy with Clay for leaving 19 Entertainment, the show’s management company. “To say the least, it was tense around here when Clay showed up,” the staffer told the paper. “And boy, did they hustle him off the premises as fast as possible. If he didn’t get the hint after that — he never will.’’ Not that we don’t love Clay, but we’d like to suggest to Adam to never duet with him or any other former “Idol”… ever!

Though police said Paris is not a suspect, the heiress should probably not expect a “Welcome To The Neighborhood” fruit basket from her neighbors – and likely also a bill for the damage!
